Our objective was to investigate differences in ethnotheories and childrearing practices of mothers with low (N = 46) and high (N = 45) intensity of PPD. The Brazilian version of Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale was applied at 3, 8 and…

Kim, Pilyoung; Bianco, Hannah – ZERO TO THREE, 2014
Poverty-associated chronic stress is a serious threat not only to a mother's mental health but also to maternal functioning. Recent neuroimaging studies suggest that a mother's brain undergoes dynamic changes to support her transition to parenthood, including better emotion regulation and heightened sensitivity to infants. However, we propose that…

Previous studies showing that Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in children can have secondary effects on the child's parents are limited by small sample sizes and parent self-report. We examined the odds of depression in parents of children with ASD compared to parents of children without ASD using a large national claims database. Mothers (OR 2.95,…

Coyne, Lisa W.; Thompson, Alysha D. – Journal of Child and Family Studies, 2011
Childhood internalizing problems may occur as early as preschool, tend to be stable over time, and undermine social and academic functioning.

Adams, Dawn; Clarke, Samantha; Griffith, Gemma; Howlin, Pat; Moss, Jo; Petty, Jane; Tunnicliffe, Penny; Oliver, Chris – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2018
It is well documented that mothers of children with challenging behavior (CB) experience elevated levels of stress and that this persists over time, but less is known about the experience of mothers of children with rare genetic syndromes. This article describes 2 studies, 1 cross-sectional and 1 longitudinal, comparing well-being in mothers of…

Hay, Dale F.; Pawlby, Susan; Waters, Cerith S.; Sharp, Deborah – Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, 2008
Background: Postpartum depression (PPD) is considered a major public health problem that conveys risk to mothers and offspring. Yet PPD typically occurs in the context of a lifelong episodic illness, and its putative effects might derive from the child's exposure to other episodes, in pregnancy or later childhood. The aim of the study is to test…

Miller-Graff, Laura E.; Nuttall, Amy K.; Lefever, Jennifer E. B. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
Women are at greater risk of exposure to interpersonal violence during pregnancy. The influence prenatal violence has on children's behavioral adjustment is generally understood to stem from its impact on mothers, but there is a dearth of prospective research to test these models. The current study evaluated the influence of interpersonal violence…
